From a hum­ble ac­com­pa­ni­ment of the sari to a state­ment piece that makes your draped look stand out, blouses have come a long way. Adding a dose of quirk and moder­nity to sari ethics, one can re­place classic blouses with crop tops, capes, bil­lowy shirts and what not!

“Blouses have be­come more con­tem­po­rary and the fo­cus is now more on the sil­hou­ette than the bust,” says de­signer Nikhil Mehra.

Be­sides run­ways, Bol­ly­wood movies, too, ex­hibit the lat­est trends, and fash­ion­istas swear by them. “From Nar­gis’s col­lared blouse in the ’50s to Mad­huri Dixit’s con­i­cal blouse in the ’90s, women have taken in­spi­ra­tion from th­ese di­vas,” says de­signer Nida Mah­mood.

In the mood to ex­per­i­ment? Here are some in­ter­est­ing styles you try.
